With COVID cases rising, EYLE will be temporarily discontinuing onsite tutoring as of Monday, November 23rd until at least January 4th.  In the meantime, all tutoring sessions, intakes and matches will take place online. Keeping it safe! 

Special Announcement:  East York Learning Experience is honoured to have once again been named a Top 10 Canadian Impact Charity by Charity Intelligence.  We also made the grade as a Top 5 Toronto Impact Charity and Top 100 Charity.  Congratulations to all program members (students, volunteers and staff), our funders, and other community supporters.

Our Mission

‘EYLE’s adult literacy, numeracy and digital literacy programs transform lives and enhance self-worth by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.’

We help adults improve their reading, writing, basic math and digital literacy skills.   Operating as a charity in East Toronto since 1987, we have helped over eleven hundred adults build better lives.

Our clients meet weekly in one-to-one sessions with trained, volunteer tutors.  They follow an individualized training plan to meet their literacy goals.

Did you know?

42% of Canadian adults between 16-65 years have low literacy skills.  They can not read or write well enough to:

  • apply for jobs
  • read a newspaper
  • write a letter
  • fill out forms
  • do banking

Our services are free to clients because of the generous support of our funders and private donors.
